RE: Brooks Family
Hi, Aaron's eldest brother, Jeremiah Brooks & Anna Misner, are my g-g-grandparents; they have findagrave memorials, Elm Springs Baptist Church Cem, Kingsville, Johnson, MO. Eli's widow, Sarah, went to IA with daughter Charlotte, w/o Thornton Howe, who d. 1861. Charlotte then married Henry Thomas Glendenning. Sarah is in their household, 1870 Census, Middle Fork, Ringgold, IA, age 75, b. OH, and enumerates that both of her parents were of foreign birth. If there was a Brooks Family Bible, it probably went to IA with Sarah - that's the only possible source for her maiden name,which is lost.

RE: Not buried in Indiana
William is linked to the correct wife. The Mary you are saying is his wife, buried in N.C. is a different woman. Their birth dates are different, they were born and lived in different states, they have different middle names. Here is the William Brooks that the Mary Brooks in N.C. was married to, not the same as Indiana William Brooks:

RE: Memorial Management
To transfer, all you need to do is click on where it says transfer management on the person's memorial and put in my ID# which is 46924171.
